The Maserati 3500 GT is a grand tourer produced between 1957 and 1964 in two versions : coupé with a coachwork by Touring or convertible by Vignale. The model was presented at the 1957 Geneva Auto Show, one of the first example of GT with series production done by Maserati.

The Maserati 3500 GT Spider was built only at 242 examples (2,000 for the coupé). This version was presented two years later in 1959 at the Salon de l'Auto of Paris with a design of Giovanni Michelotti, Italian designer working for Vignale (known mostly for the design of the Triumph in the 50's).

I would love to get the opportunity to photograph beautiful cars like these with the history and those classic lines that we can not have these days any more

Car's design was better at this time 50's and 60's... now all the cars look alike.

That's a beautiful car mate and fun to drive I bet, cheers.

A dream to be behind the wheel of a car like this.
